Florida Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) Awards

This week, our In Focus section comes to us from Principal Elaine Peters (HMA– Florida), who reviews the recent re-procurement by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) of its Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) health and dental plans. The SMMC program currently has two key program components: Long-Term Care (LTC) and Managed Medical Assistance (MMA). The new SMMC program changes the two components to: Integrated MMA and LTC and Dental. The 2016 Legislature “carved out” dental services from MMA plans and new dental plans will be responsible for providing dental services to eligible members.

Every Wednesday, HMA publishes the Weekly Roundup, an information-packed resource that will keep you updated on industry news, trends in state health policy throughout the nation, and more.
